Never been so excited to go to Mississippi. Highest rate of #Covid deaths in the USA are in MS. There is much work to do. We are a collectively a healthier society and nation when we are all healthy! #Access #Education #Equity💕💚
Alpha Kappa Alpha established the Mississippi Health Project in the 1930s to address healthcare disparities that still exist today. Next week, we sojourner to the Mississippi Delta to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Impact Day and our Mississippi Health Project II.

Tomorrow I arrive in MS. 85yrs ago @akasorority1908 created the Mississippi Health Project to provide medical care to the impoverished unable to receive it because of segregation. My Sorors and I continue this legacy. In the USA MS has the highest rate of #COVID deaths, 1 in 326
